Giving hints about the design elements of the bike, Honda has also released a sketch. It suggests that the electric motorcycle will bear resemblance to the recently launched CB750 Hornet and the CB300F. Overall, the bike is likely to feature an aggressive look with a wide handlebar and muscular tank-like structure.

It could get a split-type seat, angular headlight with LED lighting, tapered rear end, and a sleek tail lamp. The sketch also hints that Honda may equip the motorcycle with a digital instrument cluster.

The Japanese company may give disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels of the bike along with dual-channel ABS to enhance safety. Regenerative braking and riding modes could also be seen in the bike.

Honda hasn’t offered any details about the power figures, range or other specifications of the bike. However, it has been speculated that the electric motorcycle may come with a range of up to 200 km. It is likely to be powered by a PMS electric motor that will draw energy from a large battery pack.
